DOS - 1993
Description of El-Fish
1993 saw the release of El-Fish (also known as SimFish) on the DOS system. A simulation game, created by AnimaTek International, Inc. and distributed by Maxis Software Inc.. If you like meditative / zen, download, install and enjoy El-Fish!
A unique and refreshing simulation, El Fish lets you breed -- err-- fish and watch them live in a virtual aquarium. Every aesthetic factor involved in aquarium design is at your disposal, including tank decorations, types of water, etc. The program does not profess to create a realistic ecosystem: rather, it is aimed at simulating different types of fish you create (which are virtually unlimited, thanks to an ingenious and robust fish design interface). After you're done with designing, there's not a whole lot to do, but watching your creation on screen is quite relaxing :)

The installer complains that there is one file left to install on the installation diskette named "NEXT." There doesn't seem to be a "NEXT" in the download... Somebody please help?

You need to adjust the CPU speed / emu cycles to fit the games requirements, else you only have 3 fishes swimming. Slow it down a bit and you'll have 10 fishes swimming.
Spent 18 hours to animate one fish on my 386 that time, now less then a minute.
Did over 100 cool fishes that time with editing the roe files.
A must have and now works in DosBox very nicely.

The most fun I've had is making wild mutants by editing the .ROE files. It is worth downloading just for that!! Of course the game is fun to play as it stands, too.
